Maple Syrup Glazed Spiced Walnuts with Cocoa Nibs



How's that for a descriptive title?! Eric used maple syrup to glaze walnuts, instead of jaggery as described here. We first tasted Satya spiced walnuts at Bahkti in the woods. Eric used the Cottage Blend, recommended to balance acidity and his Pitta (fire element). this blend also helps liver function.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 5 cups walnuts
  • 1/4 cup chopped cocoa nibs
  • one package "cottage blend" or other Satya spices.
  • coconut oil or butter or olive oil (to grease baking pans)
Mix together maple syrup and spices, then the nuts and cocoa nibs - gradually. Mix as you stir in more nuts to coat evenly. Spread on greased cookie sheets and bake at 350F for 3 to 5 minutes. Refrigerate in a jar or airtight container for best results.
